What is Clearing?

Clearing is a service available between July and September, but for most people it is used immediately after the exam results are published. It helps applicants who have not secured a place at university or college for whatever reason to find vacancies on higher education courses.

How Clearing works

If your first choice and insurance university or college turn you down, you can use ‘Clearing’ to find another place. If you’re eligible, you’ll see an ‘Add Clearing Choice’ button appear on your UCAS website Track screen. If you’ve not yet submitted a UCAS application, you will need to do so before you can enter Clearing.

Looking for a course through Clearing

From the day the A level results come out in August, course vacancies are advertised on the UCAS website and in the national press.

After looking at vacancies, you should talk to the admissions staff at any universities and colleges with places available on courses you’re interested in. You should also let them have your Clearing Number.

Staff will be able to tell you whether they are prepared to offer you a place. If they are, and you want to accept it, you should enter details of the institution and course on Track.

You can only enter details for one choice. If a university or college confirms your place in Clearing, you are committed to taking up that place and you can’t seek a place elsewhere.

However, if the university or college decides not to offer you a place in Clearing, the ‘Add Clearing Choice’ button will re-appear on Track and you will be able to apply for another course.

For more information about Clearing at University Centre at Wakefield College on 01924 789803.

The structure of the course prepares you for employment and that was one of the things that sold it to me. Our tutor gives us excellent support and his dedication to the course is second to none.
